Whoops! We Invited the Wrong Peter Forgacs!


Listen here

The Hungarian Culture Ministry had egg on its face this week.

During national celebrations on Monday, the ministry wanted to give an award to film director Peter Forgacs.

However, it invited Peter Forgacs, an actor and theater director.

It was not until the minister was about to present the award that the error was recognized.


to have egg on one’s face: to make an embarrassing mistake, to feel like a fool.


  1. It’s not so bad.At least the other Peter’s job has something to do with acting lines.It will be a better error if the Culture Ministry invited a cook instead of this fellow it will be a pretty good piece of news!haha.
